Welcome to another new and exciting week! This week has flown by extremely fast. I think in 2013, my mission will be to have more weeks like this. It was jammed packed with lots of laughs, new experiences, and quality time with family & friends. Here's what happened!
Ok, what can I say about this video that doesn't speak for itself??? This was probably the best laugh I've had all week! I couldn't believe these elderly angels really sang this many popular hip-hop songs. At the end of the day, these folks showed a great sense of humor for this odd task. I just love the effort they put into it.
Favorite Look: Zooey Dechanel's Blue Coat!
One thing I have in common with one of my favorite celebrities (Lauren Conrad) is bows! I fell in love with this coat Zooey Dechanel wore in Tuesday night's episode of New Girl. I could barely concentrate on this silly little song she was singing because I was so infatuated with this coat. I also loved how the stylist paired the bright blue with muted neutrals. I was on a mission to find this coat. It's Kate Spade of NYC $418 at Neiman Marcus! Not that I can afford it, but I still Love Love Love!!
Favorite Shock of the week: Shemar Moore & Sweet Brown on Watch What Happens Live
I've always known Shemar Moore to be a flirt from what I've seen of him during interviews over the years... Never in my life did I ever expect to see him making out with Sweet Brown on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live! I about crapped my pants. She was in hea-ven!! I mean, who wouldn't be??? But I guess Sweet Brown can really live up to the swag everyone thinks she has if Shemar Moore is making out with her. I'm a little jealous, but I'm not hating, girl! Do you thang, Sweet Brown! Everybody got time for that!
Favorite Experience: Going to see Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet
Favorite Techy Obsession: the NEW Kindle Paperwhite coming out December 20, 2012
I'm both estatic and pissed about the new Kindle Paperwhite coming soon. Let me just say, I am not one who buys a lot of "devices". Some folks tend to splurge religiously on new technology, and I just don't get into it. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it..." Is usually my motto. This explains why I have a Blackberry with a rollerball still, and still own a VHS/DVD combo player. So, when it came to finally getting down and getting an eReader, I did extensive research. On top of not being someone who splurges on the "latest" technology, I'm also not a person who splurges on myself much, either. So even though it was only a $100 purchase, I wanted to make sure I was getting something I truly wanted. I didn't need all the bells and whistles. I feel like people get so fascinated (or bamboozled, whichever you prefer...) with the fact that a product has all these features-- but in reality, what about every other device that does the same thing? Why do I need 3G internet access on my Kindle, when I have a cell phone & Laptop that already do the same thing? I can't imagine me being soooo desperate to get a book, that I can't just go to the end of my street & connect to the nearest satellite. But I digress....
So, that being said, when I finally made my decision to get a Kindle, I got the Kindle Touch. I am in love with this little gadget, but I was a little bummed that the only one they offered in backlighting was the Kindle Fire, and I wasn't going to go for that. So, I conceded to buy my new Kindle & be happy with whatever detached light source I had available. I said all this to say... with someone who puts that much thought into a simple splurge, it was a little disheartening that they come out with the exact version I would've bought a few months ago, had it been available. So, I'm doing what has rarely been done in my history of technological buying, and am upgrading as soon as something comes out. I feel liberated, somewhat... but at the same time a little pissed, lol. This will, in no way change how I am about technology, but it's nice to know I have the option when it suits me.
Well, this is the end of another week of good times! Tune in next week for more fascinating finds! Don't forget to suscribe!
